Genie Obit:gospel singer George Beverly Shea (1909-2013) (7) RE: Obit: George Beverly Shea - April 2013 20 Apr 13


I had learned, over a year ago, that George Beverly Shea was still alive at 103, and I knew he had celebrated his 104th birthday this past February.
I know he continued singing in concerts about a decade or so ago. Glad to know he never really stopped singing.

"Bev" Shea was probably my mom and dad's favorite singer, and I loved his deep baritone voice and the soul he put into his songs.

I did not know until very recently that he was also a songwriter and co-wrote "I'd Rather Have Jesus" among other songs.

When he had his 104th birthday this past Feb., I began to wonder just how long he could keep going.   I'm glad to know he lived such a long and, apparently, fulfilling life.

The heavenly choir has just gained a wonderful new voice.
